An update of the NPD’s resource classification system
The NPD’s Resource Classification System from 2001 has been updated. The new system has only minor changes compared to the previous one as all “boxes” are the same.
The changes are mainly language improvements, including new names for some resource classes (boxes).
The objective of the update is to harmonise the description in the classification system with terminology used elsewhere and clarify the relation to decision milestones used for project maturation.
In addition it is attempted, as much as possible, to use the same terminology as in international systems like SPE PRMS and UNFC.
The new terminology will be implemented gradually, and will be used when the new resource account is published in February 2017.

Change is often difficult. This will also be true for the transition from fossil energy systems to renewables.
